You probably dont want to do that. The host would be pretty damaged eventually if it isnt much bigger than the clown. They arent meant for hosting.

That being said, its pretty unlikely that the vlown would host anyways. Ive got a relativly big frogspawn compared to my little Occ. Clown, and he wont go near it!

IMO, an anemone in a 30 gal is probably not a good idea. In large tanks it is do-able, but still not a good idea. Even if everything goes well with the Anemone and the coral, as is my case, the Anemone will wear out his welcome, because of competition for space, as coyote said.
I've had my Sebae for over 6 years and now is in the front corner of my 180. Just the shroud without the tentacles has to be 14-16" across, clown loves it but it has to be isolated. Luckily for me he isn't really much of a roamer, but he and the Gold-band 'maroon will soon be going. I hate to seperate them so the clown will go too.
With that said, you can still get a clown. Unless it conflicts with other stock, if you want one, get one. If your waters up to snuff and you feed him, he'll be fine!

Some corals will not host a clown without hurting the coral...but octocorals like waving hand (anthellia) do not seem to mind the clown fish at all. Especially the type with elongated polyps like I have.

I'll never have one either. My feogspawn stung one if my acans and left a gapping wound. I can only immagibe what a strong stinging anemone will do when it doesn't move away

I guess some are willing to take more risks then others, there awesome creatures and I enjoy keeping them regardless of the risk but to each is own

I just have a 28g nano with the regular lighting that comes with it in it, and my anemone does great, so yours should do fantastic! I made the choice to spend a little extra $, and I decided on getting a Rose Bubble Tip Anemone, and I love it! It is a pretty hardy species that I could just stare at for hours. It is very easy to care for, and I feed it about 2-3 times a week with cut up krill. The only down side to the anemones is their ability to move by themselves. Mine didn't exactly go to the most desirable and ideal location, but it is still definately a pleasant species to have. You should definately get one!
